It's not done on purpose, and we dont quite "feel" the same way eternally as we do projecting it externally. It's just that we dont understand our limits and overcompensate for it. The term "Go big or go home" I feel most ENTP's can relate to.

    I get what you're saying... I think with me as well, because I don't actually feel strong and intense emotions I will basically subconsciously pick an emotion to display that seems appropriate. So if you see me having an angry rant in an argument, the chances are I am actually not angry at all. I am guessing because of this ENTPs will often appear more up tight about a lot of things than is actually the case.

    It is possible. I'm just going by what he told me.

    No, he has little beady eyes. Reminds me of the chief of police on that show, Continuum.

The difference between my extroversion and hers in relation to other people is that she will not approach somebody she doesn't know and I will without hesitation.

    Otherwise among friends or if drawn into a conversation with new people she does just as much talking as I. And she's the one person I know who has as much self distance and she can always find a joke in any situation no matter how morbid.

    Be the adult with an ENTP? Are you kidding me? I grew up being the only adult in my family from the age of 8. When my parents divorced after 38 years n November who do you think left a life in another country to come take care of the practical arrangements and people involved?

    An ENTP is a take charge person if you ever met one - only we have no wish to have power over other people (ENTJ?!). We want freedom and independence and to learn - to be our best. You don't get much of that if you have to be responsible/in charge of incompetent subordinates etc. If we take charge it's because we are LOYAL to help the people we love or otherwise see that we HAVE to in order to save the day. You should be pretty happy to have us in your corner.

    Overall I think people should stop assuming ENTPs are fickle assholes (especially the females) because no. It's not a fair assessment. Hurts my fucking undeveloped Fi. (My Ti just thought of that btw.)

    And let me tell you that if there is one person in this world my friends trust with secrets or call when they're in the shit: It's me, Ne-ing away. Saved my INFJ on numerous occasions because when gets "stuck" I guide her towards a new approach. She does the same for me when I'm in full blown shadow INTJ-mode. She and my INTP friend (also girl) will be the only ones I want to see. And they will make me laugh just being more morbid than me.

    All in all I'd say I'd say we are a good friendship match and considering how my friend acts in relationships, how she talks etc. I feel encouraged to try with a guy. However, I feel that there is one huge piece missing for me that make me feel like I can't really connect with her on "my" level. Probably the tertiary Ti. I guess we're all different but romantically I think I will do better with other INTs that keep me interested.
    My comments came from a book about inter-type relationships, written by Paul D. Tieger and Barbara Barron-Tieger. I noted what spoke to me as an ENTP interacting with INFJ.

    You may not fit into a box and that's okay. You're not alone.

    (I have at least a couple of projects going at any one time and when I'm focused on those, which is often, I'm not emotionally supportive or social for the sake of it. So, no, I don't often show the INFJ proper respect or take them seriously or make them a priority when they want to talk.)

    I'm getting the impression that ENTPs are really only seen in one of two lights: perpetual children and self-interested manipulators. This is kind of disappointing. Maybe it's time to visit Personality Page for a nice ego fluffing.
    I'm not even sure I know an ENTP but..damn. Going by this thread alone, they're beyond easy to offend. I compare it to me telling someone those humane society commercials make me cry then getting mad when they didn't believe me.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    You're absolutely right. Our flightiness and irresponsibility are a cover for our very weak self esteems and self concepts. We joke because we hurt. It's the only way to bring a ray of joy into our miserable nihilistic lives. Also, I am a 9 so you must be especially delicate with my emotions okay?

    It wouldn't hurt for 9's to occasionally be told when they're acting like a little bitch.

    Uh oh. You appear to be taking the things I say more seriously than intended. That's dangerous. You probably shouldn't do that.

    No, I got your sarcasm. My reply may or may not be sarcastic, depending on the 9 and what they're doing (and if they're calling me a soulless megalomaniac or not).
